Heading Down the Mine
It has now bot 14 days since I began my Ethereum journey, and how far I’ve come. I began out with a single 4-way GPU system that I turned into two PCs with seven graphics cards inbetween them, and then into four systems with 12 graphics cards, and then it all went a little blurry.
I’m now sitting with 12 systems spread out across 40 graphics cards, thanks to the thickest asset of them all: PCIe x1 to PCIe x16 risers. Without thesis, I would be stuck at closer to 20-25 graphics cards. There’s a mix of NVIDIA and AMD ter there, with a bunch of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060s because of their superb power efficiency – mixed ter with GTX 1070s, GTX 1080s, and GTX 1080 Ti cards. Spread across their own, and intertwined systems are also the cryptocurrency animals: Radeon R9 Fury series cards, and the unlikely to find Radeon RX 400 and RX 500 series cards.
There’s a heap of RX 470/480/570/580 cards, but the R9 Nano, R9 Fury, and R9 Fury X cards are still Ethereum mining behemoths. They have special places te three different systems, with one dedicated to Fiji-based GPUs, while another two systems are dedicated to Radeon RX series graphics cards. For the systems with 750W/850W PSUs, I’ve used the power efficient GTX 1060s thanks to their single 6-pin PCIe power connector.
The Last Two Weeks
I commenced on June 6, and by June 7, you can see I wasgoed hitting 300MH/s without a problem. At that point, I wrote the “I’m making $900 vanaf month mining Ethereum, I want MORE!” article, which has since deepthroated up. This wasgoed when the bug began, and off I went on this escapade.
After reaching 300MH/s, I wasgoed keen to dual it within a few days and leisurely venture up to the peak of 1GH/s of Ethereum mining. The price wasgoed rising every day, and so wasgoed the difficulty – timing wasgoed key.
I had three more systems to use, so I packed them with the fastest hardware I had – but it wasgoed too much for my petite three bedroom house and its feeble power delivery. I reached just timid of 500MH/s within 24 hours of adding fresh systems but had to switch out the 1200W/1500W PSUs with smaller, more power efficient PSUs.
Another 48 hours straks and some PSU shuffling around, without extra hardware purchases, I klapper another wall @ 600MH/s with the last system I had te parts assembled.
